Rocky Gap State Park, Flintstone, Maryland

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

We used the Golden Age pass to get 1/2 price camping Sunday - Thur. We stopped at the main gate to check in, but since it was off season there were no rangers on duty, but they did have a sign in sheet with a confirmation of our reservation. Even though no rangers were on regular duty, they did patrol the campground numerous times throughout the day. We booked site 23 in the Ash loop which is the only electric loop. The site backed into the wooded area, very roomy and very private with a nice path to the restroom and shower facilities. There was plenty of room in the pad area for our 15' teardrop and a 12 x 12 pop up canopy with additional seating around. The site was pretty level, only needed a thin strip of wood to level up under one side. Electric worked great, and the water spigot is very close if you need to get more water. The campground was not busy, mainly there were a lot of overnight campers. We had a regular family of 10 wild turkeys visiting our campsite and the neighboring sites throughout the park every morning and evening. Restrooms and showers were cleaned daily and were in good working order. We did walk around the campground and again scouted out different sites to stay in the future. We picked out site #14 for a future stay which is heavily wooded, backed into the woods and very roomy. The driveway is one of the few that are paved. The fire ring is outside of the camping pad which will give you even more room around your camping unit. See my comments October 2017 for additional reviews of the park and surrounding area. Looking forward to staying at Rocky Gap again, as I mention again that this is my favorite Md State Park. We camped at Rocky Gap State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Book a trip on the Potomac Eagle RR in Romney, W Va. for Bald Eagle viewing (sit on the left side of the train). They have spotters on the train that alert you where to look for viewing and taking photos. Very nice 3 hour round trip, with no stops. Refreshments and restrooms available on the train. See my previous comments of Oct 2017 for additional tips. Book a trip on the Western Md RR (sit on the right side).

Prince William Forest RV Campground, Dumfries, Virginia

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

We used a Good Sam discount and paid the $5 to guarantee the site via phone. Only stayed 2 nights for a wedding in the area Sept. 8/9. Site B2 needed some leveling, was paved with nice picnic table. Our site was long enough for our 15' teardrop, but we needed to park our Ram pickup crossways, which made it very close to the loop road. Check in was quick and friendly owners. Ice available as well as propane and RV supplies. A short walk to the restrooms which were code entry, very clean and showers worked great. If we were staying in the area again, we would reserve C2 - seemed to be a little roomier and has a large shade tree. Check out the site numbers on the website and read all reviews. Pool looked nice, but we did not use. No fire ring at most sites, but you could reserve one for a nightly fee along with firewood purchase. Pretty quiet, not a lot of kids using the playground. If we would have had more time and if the weather was nicer we would have walked to the rear of the park to check out row F. We were very pleased with staying here. We camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

A must go to restaurant is Brother's Encore Italian Restaurant on Waterway Dr in the Lake Montclair Center - very close to the campground. A nice drive to the battlefield in Manassas and easy access to Rt 95 and Rt 1.

Cunningham Falls State Park - William Houck Campground, Thurmont, Maryland

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

Camped in a 15' Teardrop trailer in Site #7 Addison - only electric loop and also allows pets. Very level, heavily wooded, private and plenty of shade. Various water locations through out the loop to fill up a water container. Very spacious site as most are in the Maryland State Parks. Electric worked well and good location. Will definitely book this site again. When we were tent campers we always booked #105 in the Deer Spring Branch loop. Very private and huge site with lots of shade. We've also switched to a small one room cabins when the weather was going to be rainy and didn't want to set up camp in the rain. With the beauty of the cabin you can stay dry and still have a small front porch with overhang. Roomy outside to still do cooking, campfire and picnic table eating. Cunningham - Houck Area is a nice local state park that we have booked on numerous occasions. We camped at Cunningham Falls State Park - William Houck Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Try Rocky's NY Pizza, great prices, subs are huge. On Tippin Dr with other stores to do 1 stop shopping. Close to the campground, off 77 to right on Tippin Dr through the residential area. In season shop at Pryor Orchard, great selection and prices. N near Tippin Dr. Get the ADC map books for Frederick and Washington Counties so you can travel to the Frederick/Hagerstown areas using the back scenic roads. Lots of antique shopping in the area.

Rocky Gap State Park, Flintstone, Maryland

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

Sites were well spaced. Our site was on the outside loop which had lots of trees and low brush between most sites. A lot of the sites on the inside of the loop went back further into the trees and were very private, not at all visible to the bath house, which will be my choice on my next visit. The drive thru sites 11 and 13 were excellent. This is the only electric loop, which also allows pets, but I noticed a lot of owners did not follow the rules of pets on a leash at all times. Lots of wooded paths leading to the bath house from the inside sites. We could hear road noise, because our site was backed up to the woods and main entrance for incoming and outgoing vehicles to the camping loops, but the noise was not that bad. Rocky Gap seems to be more wooded than a lot of the other Md State Parks. Rocky Gap is a nice state park, rangers patrol on a regular basis. We will be going again next year. We camped at Rocky Gap State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Go on the Western Md Scenic Railroad. A good restaurant is Crabby Pig. Stop at the chamber of commerce in the railroad station for brochures and get a street map of Cumberland. A great lunch deli is Queen Street Creamery & Deli. On 68 not far from the campground, a must go to restaurant is Puccini's. Great wood fired pizza, sandwiches and dinners. great.
